Superb Opinion

  • I went out with a nineteen year old when I was 48 and discovered that I only thought I wanted a younger woman. The sex was amazing, but we have very little in common after that.
    Judging by what I have seen though it’s not the normal thing for a young woman to want an older men, but it’s not uncommon either.
    You, however are fifteen so unless by older you mean sixteen or seventeen, you might hold off. Most men realize that jailbait isn’t worth it and the ones that don’t are not people you want to be around

Most Helpful Girls

  • I'm not sure since I prefer guys my age. The older ones are usually celebrities and kpop idols but they usually look better than the average male anyways. I think social conditioning plays a role since in the past the most muscular and younger male was the most desired by women for guranteed protection and the passing of good genes but now that changed since financially security is more of a priority to women nowadays and older men are usually the ones with that privillege and they have bigger authority which women find attractive. Plus daddy issues play a role too.

  • I prefer younger guys. I talk to ages 18-20 but it's common still for age differences either way

Most Helpful Guy

  • I think we are all individuals all have different tastes but it seems like younger girls would like older men because boys their age are way behind in the maturity part I know some eighteen-year-old 90 year old girls that are so freaking smart they even have their own businesses and they are way up on the maturity level and some are more mature than girls play age at least have it together a little bit better

  • Normal = what everyone or the majority is doing.

    By that definition, no, it's not normal. Normal means the majority. Other things that are not normal:

    Scuba diving, homosexuality, surfing, travel, eating a mango a day, not liking cheesecake, being able to hold your breath underwater for more than 3 minutes, having a job that pays more than $200K/year. Do you get my drift? Being "normal" isn't the same as being good or bad.

    That said, yeah, lots of people like others that are either older or younger than them. But "normal" people pretty much stay close to their own age range; that's what is most common.

    Is it normal for girls to like older guys and vice versa?
  • Yup. To be frank anyone who can reproduce would realistically be able to like anyone else who they can do so what. That should just be nature at play.
    Naturally it often makes a little more logical sense that liking someone older might be more common among girls. But as a guy I can confidently say we do too. That doesn't mean you should always act on it.

  • Functionally 'yes'... she trades her allure, companionship and potential fertility for his appreciation, resources and protection. Its Naturally mutually beneficial in the pragmatic long view. Statistically, she WILL outlive him.

  • It varies between people.

    also the first time people meet may be in a pub or club,

    Initial guesstimates on ages may be wrong and you end up doing the fancying bit before finding out their is a 10 year gap or more.

  • i always liked older

  • No. I put up with crusty behavior by old men countless times from the age if a small child. I was never into older men. I liked the old souls of my age.

  • You 15 years old.

  • It's a common thing that girls like older guys, as for guys its common enough that they like older women. Now do men often get those older women is another story entirely.

  • Well my husband is three years older than me, if that helps.

  • I prefer girls up to 10 years younger than me and they seem to like me too so I'd say yes it works both ways. But definitely younger girls like older guys mainly for their maturity and stability.

  • "This is not unusual..."

  • as long as they’re legal

    • That helps

  • Yes.

  • Yeah, it happens frequently.

    • I'm assuming that you mean young adult women and older guys.

  • Yes.

  • Yes, long as no adult is interested in a minor. That is beyond fucked up.

  • Yes, but you should wait a while before forming attachments.

  • I would say it's pretty normal... Most girls like guys that are mature and can handle themselves. Most guys that are like that are older.

  • Yes, with me I always seem to fall for younger females, it's real love not about sex

  • Lots of young girls like older guys. It is pretty normal. Especially if the old guy is rich.
